April 13, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Join Columbia University’s Tow Center for Digital Journalismand the Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Stanford University on April 13 for an afternoon conference on: Public Record Under Threat: News and the Archive in the Age of Digital Distribution. Panels will feature journalists, technologists, librarians, and engineers who will discuss how they are preserving the first draft of history in an era of newsroom cutbacks, ephemeral social media, and disappearing data. Learn how newsrooms are handling the digitization of print content and the preservation of digital-born news. Who makes the decisions? What are the biggest challenges and how are news organizations solving them? The conversation will also address the importance of the public record and how reporters are using and thinking about archives, as well as how their practices and policies will affect access to content in the future.
